THE SKETCHBOOKS OF WILLIAM SMITH: day 6

For the past 5 days, I have shared a number of portraits and life drawings from Smith's sketchbooks.  But Smith didn't stop with drawing people, his sketchbooks are filled with drawings of animals, landscapes and objects of all sorts.





Because of his extensive travels, Smith's landscape sketches include interesting sites from all around the world.




Whether he was drawing the megaliths of Stonehenge or random rocks by the side of the road in Ireland, Smith paid his subjects the tribute of fresh visual attention.

Wonderful sensitivity of line in all his stuff. His ability to capture character with great economy is really impressive.

Kev Ferrara-- Agreed. I think you would have enjoyed flipping through these sketchbooks and seeing the mind of the artist at work, from page to page.
